Northton beach, also known as Traigh an Thaoibh Tuath, is large and sits at the southern end of Scarista beach, but there are also four small south-facing beaches in the immediate area that appear like hidden jewels on the coastline. The beaches are regularly visited by otters, seals and other marine life. A notable resident was the Professor of Natural History, William MacGillivray and the area is well known for its bird life. This is an exquisite beach. Highly recommended.
